Press release, June 21; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES Asia 0

Gigabyte Technology has released the GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming graphics card (GV-N1070G1 GAMING-8GD), featuring overclocked GPU, WindForce cooling module and RGB illumination. The Pascal-based card is also equipped with 8GB of GDDR5 memory.

The WindForce 3X cooling system incorporates two composite copper heat-pipes with direct touch to GPU, special fin architecture, and unique blade fan design, together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for performance at a lower temperature. The 3D Active Fan provides semi-passive cooling, which allows gamers to enjoy gameplay in complete silence when the system is running light or idle. An LED fan indicator provides a user-friendly, instant display of the fan status.

The GTX 1070 G1 Gaming features 6+2 power phase technology on the card, allowing the MOSFET to work at a lower temperature to provide more stable voltage output. The card also comes with one-click overclocking via the Xtreme Engine.

The smart power LED indicator helps to ensure the system stability at all times. In case of any power abnormality, the flashing LED adjacent to the power connector could immediately bring the issue to the gamer's attention.
